I have moved to a little town in southern Mississippi, in the woods, and live next  door to my sister, her husband, and two horses.
We are still getting things out of my Mother’s house in New Orleans. There are lots of things that we can’t take. Mom collected a lot of little statues. None of us have room for those, plus my cats would just love to knock them over.
It’s a “tale of two cities” re the coronavirus. I had to go into town to get the oil changed in the car and get a couple of items. Virtually no one was wearing masks or keeping distance. However, when I go to New Orleans tomorrow I will be required to wear a mask whenever entering a building or being around a group of people.

I like different periods of Jazz. I like the traditional, Louis Armstrong - his song West End Blues is one of my all time favorites. I also like swing such as Benny Goodman.  Also Dave Brubeck - he’s the only popular music composer other than Brian Wilson who can make me cry (tears of joy). Early Miles Davis. Singers such as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday..

Used to watch and enjoy Password when growing up in the 60s, with Allen Ludden.

Have given up trying to convince people to wear a mask in public, that it’s not some sort of “Communist plot.”
So have been listening to the Satellite Sixties channel - they are playing the Top 200 American artists of the 60s as voted on by listeners. It’s taking a while to get through them as they are playing up to 3 songs by each artist or group.
Artists heard so far that are BB related in some way are Dick Dale, Chris Montez, The Walker Brothers.
They are at I believe 58 now. Cher singing her “Bang Bang” song.
Not complaining but they included The Band on the list. Maybe because the lead singer for the 2 songs (Levon Helm) is American.
So many good groups and singers left. Where will The Beach Boys end up? And what 3 songs will they play?

Fourth of July. By myself in the woods with the dog and cats. Ate ramen (good stuff, not the cheap grocery store stuff) and a couple of peaches for breakfast. Probably some sausage and a baked potato for lunch. Wish I could get some watermelon.

Bobby Vinton singing “Mr Lonely” now...

Update: Jan and Dean came in at 37. Played Little Old Lady..., Popsicle, Surf City

Hi Lizzie. Saw this out of the corner of my eye. Well? Which three songs did they play? Please stay safe.

Spent six hours yesterday going through old songs and ended up releasing a compilation of our first decade as a band (next year we’re releasing a boxed set to celebrate our twentieth). I think this week total I spent about 3/4 of my free time working on music and the other 1/4 on this board.

I’m taking a “me” day today LOL

“Me” days are great, Billy!

John, hope all is okay with you and your family. Haven’t heard anything about the virus situation in The Netherlands and assume (hope) that means it’s not too bad right now.

Trying to stay safe and not get depressed about my relatives who believe in various “conspiracy theories.”

Hope to get more into Brian Jones when things settle down. I’ve moved things from my old house to where I am now. So many things in bags and boxes, it’s overwhelming. Some of it consists of things related to my parents that I agreed to take. My sisters said they didn’t have room. Neither do I, but hate to part with them. One is an old rocking chair that has been used for generations to rock babies to sleep. It makes a soothing “creak “ noise when rocked. Oh, the dilemma...

As for The Beach Boys, they finished first. They played three obvious songs (GOK, Surfin USA, GV) but finished with a bit of a surprise, Caroline, No.

Wonder what’s happened to Range Rover? Hope she’s okay. Saw something yesterday that made me think of her - a photo of pizza topped with pickles, her favorite. :-)

Good to hear from you, Lizzie. And good to be back in a sort of a way. Grin

Assuming my spies haven't got their knickers in a twist this time, RR has been active at Facebook recently. I hope she's okay too in these alarming times.

So you've retreated from the world (such as it is). We're all okay (thank you!), although we in NL have our fair share of stupid people too, those who flaunt the rules and wonder why the virus is flaring up here and there...

Hang on in there, E. Wow, that pizza sounds great! 

Hey Billy, good to hear Fear 2 Stop's faring well. I trust you and yours (and Jay) are all okay.  Wink

Yeah can’t complain too much. COVID has been kicking my ass a bit but doing better past two days. Thankfully the family hasn’t gotten it
